My Time to Craft and GD for A Spoon Full of Sugar!!

A Spoon Full of Sugar GD!!

I was so thrilled when Joanne asked me to be her GD over at A Spoon Full of Sugar! When I used to blog a lot this was my ultimate favourite challenge so I'm so chuffed to be a part of their blog this week! I always check out the DT cards as they're always so beautiful. Needless to say I was very nervous about making my card, but in the end I just decided to stick with my style, so I went for bright and cheery!!

In my excitement I forgot to mention that the theme this week is Easter!! The stamps I used are from the Penny Black clear set of spring stamps and I placed them together to make a scene. I used beads for the grass to add texture and the bright papers are from K&Co.
Thanks so much for having me this week girls!!

My Time to Craft

And over at My Time to Craft this week we would like to see your cards around the theme of 'Men!' Well... we did have women 2 weeks ago so it's only fair!!

I couldn't resist using this stamp as it does look a lot like Mr Becky's Grandad!! I got these stamps from the NEC. Actually, I bought quite a few of them as I thought they would make brilliant cards for my family!! I've also used my trusty Doodlebug clear stamps which I love!

Well, that's it for me this week, I'll be back next Tuesday with my cards for Sketch and Stash, My Time to Craft and Crafty Muse. Thanks so much for sticking with me whilst I've been doing my weekly blogging, and I do get round to everyone on the following Monday so please do leave a comment so I can come and visit you too!!

Love Becky xx

The Grandad card is fab, I especially like the hole in the sock, that's my dad to a 't' but he has more hair!!!

These are just fabulous Becky!
Your GD card is so bright and cheerful, just fabulous for the challenge theme.
Your man's card is superb, a perfect card for a Grandad!
I think you may actually be managing to blog more than I am at the moment and you're certainly making more cards than me!
